    1864 Copper-Nickel Cent, PR66 Cameo
    Only 370 Proofs Produced

    1864 1C Copper Nickel PR66 Cameo PCGS. The 1864 has the lowest mintage in the proof copper-nickel series with only 370 pieces struck. Most examples are not as well-preserved as this piece or the typical type coin for the series, the 1862. This proof displays deeply reflective fields that establish a "black" background for the mint frost that covers the devices. The obverse still retains much of the whiteness of the copper-nickel alloy, while the reverse is uniformly reddish toned.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 229E, PCGS# 82265)

    Weight: 4.67 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
